The OddsShark Super Computer is coming off its worst stretch of the season with a miserable 2-8 record in the past two weeks. Calibrations have been done, knobs have been fiddled with and the Super Computer is ready to re-emerge in the OddsShark SuperContest standings.
Jets (-2) Visiting the Texans
What’s not to like about the Jets? Quite a bit actually, but there’s even less to like about the Texans. The Jets are coming off of a sloppy loss to the Bills last week, but they’ve followed up two of their previous three losses with wins this season, beating the Dolphins by 13 and the Jags by five. The Jets have pretty much dominated the Texans the last six times they’ve played, going 5-1 SU and ATS.
Fresh off putting an end to the Bengals perfect record, the inconsistent Texans have been consistently bad in November, going 0-6 ATS in their last six games as home underdogs in the month. T.J. Yates, owner of four touchdown passes, seven interceptions and seven fumbles for his career, will also be starting at quarterback for the Texans. Add that to the list of things not to like about the Texans.
Panthers (-7) Hosting the Redskins
The Redskins’ offense blew up last week behind a masterful performance from Kirk Cousins. Washington put up 47 points while Cousins went 20-of-25 with four touchdowns. The Redskins have struggled on the road though as the team has averaged 17.5 points away from home with Cousins throwing seven interceptions and four touchdowns in four road games.
The Panthers boast the third-best rushing attack in the NFL, averaging 139.7 rushing yards per game, and they face a defense that allows the most yards per carry in the NFL.
Falcons (-5.5) Hosting the Colts
The Atlanta Falcons have lost two straight games to teams they should be beating – the 49ers and the Buccaneers – but will be looking to get back on track in Week 11 at home against the Indianapolis Colts. The Falcons will have fresh legs thanks to the bye week and are facing a Colts team that’s being forced to start 40-year-old Matt Hasselbeck due to injuries to Andrew Luck.
Atlanta has always been a different team at home, and considering they’ve played three of their last four away from the Georgia Dome, the -5.5 spread is not insurmountable by any stretch versus the polarizing Colts. Trend seekers will be interested to know the Falcons are a perfect 6-0 SU in their last six years coming off the bye week.
Cardinals (-5) Hosting the Bengals on Sunday Night
The Bengals looked like the ‘Bungles’ of old during their embarrassing 10-6 loss to the Houston Texans Monday night. Cincy needs to come off their worst performance of the season, on a short week and visit one of the top teams in the NFC.
The Cards have an average scoring differential of plus-13 points this season as they boast an offense that is top eight in passing, rushing and points.
Patriots (-7) Hosting the Bills on Monday Night
The -7 spread might scare some away from picking the Patriots over the Bills, but it shouldn’t. With the exception of last week’s win over the Giants, the Patriots have won eight games by an average of 16.6 points. In home victories, they’ve beaten opponent by an average of 18.8 points, plus they beat the Bills earlier this season in Buffalo by eight.
November has been a particularly good month to bet the Pats as they’ve gone 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games in the month.
